Current Bill Summary

SB 204 - This act modifies the definition of "computer science course" by including any elementary, middle, or high school course that embeds computer science content within other subjects.

This act requires, for all school years on or after July 1, 2022, certain coursework and instruction in computer science and computational thinking in public and charter high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools. Courses and instruction offered under this act must meet certain standards established by the State Board of Education and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

This act requires school districts to submit to the Department certain information related to its computer science courses and demographic enrollment information for such courses.

Computer science courses successfully completed and counted toward state graduation requirements shall be equivalent to one mathematics, science, or practical arts credit for the purpose of satisfying admission requirements at any public institution of higher education in the state.
